I’m going first.

Deployment :

Left Idrians prey at left Halberdiers.
Right Idrians prey at right Halberdiers.

Harbinger ran behind the wall.
Vilmon and Devout stayed b2b with her.
Idrians ran outside of Halberdiers charge ranges.

Houseguard Thane gave +2 movement to Halberdiers.
Halberdiers said Shield Wall and march 8 inches forward.
Right unit came to the trench.
Kaelyssa cast Blur on right Halbs.
She also cast Refuge on herself.

End of 1st round :

Harbinger cast Purification + FEAT.
Left Monk said +4 DEF and came to contest the flag.
Right Monk said +4 DEF and came b2b with the right flag.
Left Idrians shot a lot of Halberdiers + mini feat.
Champion charged at few remaining Halbs and took care of them.
Book said “no kd + no stationary”.

Hydra and Fane Knight tried to kill the Champion, but without success.
2x BE started shooting at Idrians/Dwarves.
One Halberdier came to contest the right flag.
Rest of them stayed in Shield Wall in the trench.
Kaelyssa said FEAT.

0-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Monks stayed in their positions.
Champion and Idrians took care of Fane Knight.
On the right flank, I got rid of only one contesting model.
Reclaimer gave few Ashen Veils on key models.

1-0 on the scenario.

BE and Kaelyssa shot few Dwarves.
Halberdiers said mini feat + they charged at Idrians.
Even with mini feat, they had a big problem to hit my 17 DEF Idrians (AWE + Ashen Veil).

Still 1-0 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Dwarves took care of “wounded” Hydra and objective.
Monk came to the left flag.
On the right flank, I killed almost whole Halberdier unit.
Monk scored a point on the right flag.

4-0 on the scenario.

Elves killed as many models as possible.
Arcanist came to contest the left flag.
Houseguard Thane ran to contest the right flag.

Still 4-0 on the scenario.

End of 4th round :

In my turn, I just killed one model contesting the flag.
That’s all.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

A few words after game :

  • Honestly, I was very afraid about this paring.
    Before the game, I thought that the Elves would just shoot Harbinger.
  • Fortunately, 3x Shield Guard + wall from theme was enough.
    Also, Covenant’s “no kd/stationary” aura was the most important thing here.
  • During the game, my opponent thought about CK several times.
    But after calculating everything, he resigned.
